Presentation Overview:

The ABCs of TMDLs for Stakeholders: Over the last decade, the total maximum daily load (TMDL) program has gone from a fairly quiet water quality planning program to a program found in just about every water quality manager's toolbox. A simple GoogleTM search for "total maximum daily loads" now exceeds two million hits in less than a second. What is this program and why all the attention? Who develops TMDLs, why do they develop them and how do they fit into the watershed process? What is a "303(d)" list and "integrated report" and why should we pay attention to these? This Webcast will provide an introduction to the 303(d)-listing and TMDL programs. Case examples will illustrate the various principles of the TMDL program and how this program is being used to guide water quality control decisions in both the point source and nonpoint source arenas. The Webcast will also describe how you can be involved in the 303(d) listing and TMDL development efforts in your watershed.
